I can see this is growing amongst wood chips so I am assuming it is growing on wood. There is one species of Lycoperdon which grows on soil and another which grows on wood, both are easy to get confused with but here I think you have it correct; well done I hope your fungal studies continue, its an amazing topic and one you con go a long way with in the future with. I would to mentor you. Thanks for sharing your wonderful shot.
